(From the publisher):
An anthology that spans a hundred years of science fiction, from its birth in the 1890s to the future it predicted.... Hartwell has compiled the mother of all definitive anthologies, guaranteed to change not only the way the science fiction field views itself but also the way the rest of literature views the field.... Includes stories from founding fathers in the field, such as H. G. Wells, C. S. Lewis, Jack London, and Rudyard Kipling; beloved mainstays of the genre, such as Philip Jose Farmer, Roger Zelazny, Jack Vance, and Poul Anderson; noted female writers, including Connie Willis, Nancy Kress, and James Tiptree, Jr.; and writers who have hit their stride in the last two decades, such as Bruce Sterling, William Gibson, Michael Swanwick, and James Morrow. Hartwell has also included writers widely recognized outside the genre, such as E. M. Forster, Michael Shaara, and John Crowley; and translations of foreign writers' formative works, including Dino Buzzati and Wolfgang Jeschke. This is a must-have anthology for all literary interests.
